Guide for playing 'Kapkan' on 'Chalet'.

[DISCLAIMER: This guide is intended to be as bare bones as possible in order to give general advice to any new Rainbow Six: Siege players. In addition to this article being opinionated, I would like to also state that zero-sum strats in this game do not exist and the tell of a good Siege player is their decision making and adaptation to the changing battlefield.]   Chalet is a triple-level map (consisting of three floors) found only in Ranked play. The current architecture of the map gives a significant advantage to the attackers due to the vertical destruction found on all four bomb sites.   Kapkan is a two speed, two armor, defending trap operator. His ability is the ‘entry denial device’ (commonly referred to as an EDD) which consists of a booby-trap-like explosive device which can be anchored on doorways and windows and then later triggered by unassuming attackers walking through these doorways. Kapkan is similar to Frost in so far as the operator pick will be much more effective if attackers don’t know that defenders brought him/her. This is because, if attackers know there are trap operators like Frost or Kapkan, they will be much more cautious when maneuvering throughout the objective building so as to not trigger the traps. Generally, Kapkan will be most useful for defenders by dealing damage over the course of the round while the attacking team executes a full roam clear of the objective building due to the traps only dealing about 50HP each. However, this will provide Kapkan with the maximum amount of doorways to place EDD’s - allowing the player to place them randomly throughout the building instead of all in one central location.   If you are to be in accordance with current meta, Kapkan’s loadout should be as follows: PRIMARY: 9X19-SMG (Attachments to player preference) SECONDARY: PMM (Attachments to player preference) UTILITY: NITRO-CELL (This will be commonly used for plant denial)     DEFENDING: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - TROPHY(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by attackers establishing vertical angles over and under Kitchen(A)-Trophy(B) by gaining control over 2F Master Bedroom, 2F Office, and BSMNT Car Garage. Kapkan can be a highly effective operator pick on this bomb site due to the aforementioned typical 2F roam clear carried out by attackers. Kapkan can place EDD’s throughout the windows and doorways of the second floor Master Bedroom and Office. Defenders with nitro-cell can then use the explosions of the EDD’s to determine the precise locations of attackers on the second floor and then use their nitro-cell to finish off the wounded attackers. You can usually see which EDD was triggered because when the trap explodes it partially destroys the flooring directly underneath the trap. EDD PLACEMENT: [1F] KITCHEN(A) - TROPHY(B)

  DEFENDING: [1F] GAMING(A) - BAR(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team entering and clearing the building from 2F Master Bedroom on the west side of the building all the way to the east of the building, concluding their roam clear after establishing control inside of the Library. This bomb site is perfect for an operator like Kapkan due to attackers already having their general pathway to the bomb site established in the meta. This means that the player can predict where the attackers will enter the building and how they will move towards the bomb site after breaching. Kapkan should place EDD’s sporadically throughout the second floor; starting from Master Bedroom and Office and ending inside of the 2F Library. When placing the Entry Denial Device, be cautious of which side and at what level of the doorway you place the trap on. Try to always place the EDD near the flooring and on the opposite side in which the attackers will enter through the doorway. EDD PLACEMENT: [1F] GAMING(A) - BAR(B)

  DEFENDING: [2F] OFFICE(A) - MASTER BEDROOM(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will essentially just be the inverse of Gaming-Bar. Entering through the Library and moving from east to west inside of the building is a much safer route to the second floor bomb sites as attackers can be easily shot if caught trying to repel directly onto the Master Bedroom balcony or climb the Front Yard ladder to the second floor. Kapkan should place the majority of the EDD’s on or near the bomb site. This is largely because of the way in which attackers commonly see Office(A)-Bedroom(B). Whenever defenders pick an off-meta site, attackers tend to always play a little bit more recklessly due to the confidence most players have in winning that bomb site. Kapkan can use this to his advantage by placing the EDD’s in what would otherwise be considered ‘obvious’ locations and still deal damage effectively due to attackers having a much lower level of caution. I would also recommend playing underneath the bomb site inside of Kitchen-Dining as this will position Kapkan to utilize his nitro-cell when attackers are planting the defuser. EDD PLACEMENT: [2F] OFFICE(A) - MASTER BEDROOM(B)

  DEFENDING: [BSMNT] WINE(A) - SNOWMOBILE(B) The primary route of attack on this bomb site will be by the attacking team breaching the reinforced exterior wall leading from the buildings southern exterior into Snowmobile(B). Kapkan can be useful on this bomb site by placing EDD’s throughout the first floor Fireplace, Bar, and Dining. If defenders end up having to play this bomb site multiple times, determine the primary route the attacking team is taking to the bomb site and adjust the placements of your traps accordingly. Attackers don't always prioritize control over the first floor. If you notice this about your enemy, then consider placing EDD’s throughout the basement level Big Garage and Trench or wherever else seems to be the highest volume of attackers at the beginning of the match.
